Plea in SC against law on Jallikattu

Plea in SC against law on Jallikattu

The Animal Welfare Board of India and others on Wednesday approached the Supreme Court, challenging the validity of a new law passed by the Tamil Nadu Assembly to allow Jallikattu.

The apex court posted the batch of applications relating to the traditional bull taming sport of Tamil Nadu for consideration on January 30.

A bench presided over by Justice Dipak Misra agreed to hear the matter next Monday after the counsel for Animal Welfare Board of India and other animal rights organisations, sought a hearing of their plea.

The plea was mentioned before the bench by senior advocates Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Anand Grover. They said they have moved applications against the new law, which they said, has overreached the orders of the court. The Centre’s application to withdraw the January 2016 notification will also be taken up on Monday.
